So I have under two minutes
to sing you this song
It's quite the challenge actually
because I've loved you so long
And I know I'm always writing
and so you think I'm good with words
but I can hardly express how I feel
'cause words aren't why love is real

There was a message in a bottle
at the bottom of the sea
Somebody mistook rock for paper accid-d-dentally
So their letter never made it to the lover they adore
I had to fish it from the ocean floor
and I know you won't believe me
but I swear to God it's true
The letter said, "I love you, but I don't know why I do."

And that's exactly when it hit me:
that's exactly how I feel
'cause though my love is real,
I don't know why I love you, I just do

Now, I have under fifty seconds
to finish this song
It's still surprising people wonder how we lasted so long
Do you remember when we wed how everyone said it was wrong?
But really, who cares how they feel?
'Cause wise friends aren't why love is real
and I don't know why I love you, I just do

Now, there's a singer in New York
His name is Dave Deporis
and i stole a line of verse from him
to make my chorus
And i'd write it by myself,
except what can you do but steal
when what you want to say has already been written?

And this happens all the time
in books and songs and even wine
Except the last one is a secret,
since for that one you'll get fined
I'm getting off the subject
but at least it's not a crime
But though my love is real
Oh, my love is real
I don't know why I love you I just do

    Lyric Correctionlove this song =)

    here's another try at the lyrics

    so I have under two minutes
    to sing you this song
    it's quite the challenge actually
    because I've loved you so long

    and I know I'm always writing
    and so you think I'm good with words
    but I can hardly express how I feel
    'cos words aren't why love is real

    there was a message in a bottle at the bottom of the sea
    somebody mistook rock for paper accid-d-dentally
    so their letter never made it to the lover they adore
    I had to fish it from the ocean floor

    and I know you won't believe me but I swear to god it's true
    the letter said "I love you, but I don't know why I do"
    and that's exactly when it hit me
    that's exactly how I feel
    'cos though my love is real
    I don't know why I love you I just do

    now I have under 50 seconds to finish this song
    it's still surprising people wonder how we've lasted so long
    do you remember when we wed how everyone one said it was wrong
    really who cares how they feel
    'cos wise friends aren't why love is real
    and I don't know why I love you I just do

    now there's a singer in new york his name is dave deporis
    and I stole a line of verse from him to make my chorus
    and I'd write about myself except what can you do but steal
    when what you wanna say has already been written

    and this happens all the time with books and songs and even wine
    except the last one is a secret since for that one you'll get fined
    I'm getting off the subject but at least it's not a crime
    that though my love is real
    and oh my love it's real
    I don't know why I love you I just do
